Creamy pasta, sweet prawns - such things as dreams are made of. Throw in a few fajita spices and you've got a luxurious midweek pasta to serve your happy family, friends or co works.
- In a heavy bottomed, deep sided frying pan heat the butter until foaming and sautee the prawns, turning frequently, until pink. Remove from the heat and wipe the pan.
- Add the oil and butter and fry the peppers and onions until soft, then add the garlic and cook for a further minute.
- Add the spices and stir thoroughly before pouring over the cream. Give everything another stir and allow the cream to reduce for around 30 minutes, stirring occasionally - make sure the cream doesn't boil.
- Stir in the parmesan and add the prawns back in, then stir in the pasta and stir.
